I am not running any kind af X on them just server software
(apache, bind, etc. I have not even connected a monitor to them). I
moved from IRIX to debian because it was not always easy to get
software to run under IRIX etc. And I prefered to have one less OS
to read concentrate on. And the support program here in Denmark
are really expencive we got a price for a software update about
2000$ to move to 6.5 on our Challenge L!
The maintaince of the debian are easy eventhou the
softwaremanager from SGI is a nice tool (The X client :-)). It is easy
to update and install software.
IRIX/SGI had a tendence to have a lot of "strange" software running
and to secure IRIX servers have not always been a easy task.
So overall I think that the maintaince hours have dropped.
But about X have no ideer.
